(Mango Groove)

East Coast Radio’s Concert, Comedy and Craft in association with 1Life will be held tomorrow (September 25) at the Durban Botanic Gardens.

The laidback event, staged on a public holiday, will bring together a line-up of celebrated local musicians, popular comedians and some of the best craft food and drinks that the province has to offer.

Among the musicians who will be performing are; iconic afro pop band Mango Groove, award-winning singing duo Mafikizolo, music legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo and alternative rock band Gangs of Ballet. While the line-up of comedians includes Darren Maule and Rory Petzer, as well as Barry Hilton, Carvin Goldstone and Chris Forrest.

East Coast Radio’s Concert, Comedy and Craft will boast two stages – one with the headline acts and another with local acoustic acts. It promises to be a great day out for the whole family complete with a food market, a craft beer, gin and whiskey area, a kids’ zone, open air art and drumming classes.

East Coast Radio’s GM Boni Mchunu says, “We’re proud that East Coast Radio is rooted in the social fabric of KZN by hosting some of the province's biggest and most loved events. We hope that this event, a fresh new idea, will be as well received as some of the station’s other events.”
